   [ice-9/optargs.scm bound? removal]

   Ok, I'll looker closer into this, and I now have to say that we can't
   'fix' it.  We would be changing the default default value from '#f'
   to something else.  That would be an unacceptable interface change.

but removing `bound?' is acceptable?

   Since it is easy for the user to provide the functionality on its
   own, we can just leave it as it is.

to provide out of band info, you can use out of band methods (in fact,
this is the fix i thought you were going to consider).

cc'ing guile-user to see who complains (besides me).  maybe someone can
send a patch to do a clean fix, and explain it.  maybe it's time to fork
guile (again).
